Further Education

Training and Education


Many of our students inquire about training and further education each year. What route can we take when we leave?. So we as their teachers try to be proactive. Through our mentoring program, use of their Ipads (research), our students can try and meet these needs. Our students meet with their mentors and have time to discuss their concerns about this difficult transition and other difficulties that may have. Issues such ” What do we do after “Youthreach” can very concerning for not only the students themselves but for their families and friends.

Mentors discuss options for further education/training when their students request it and for a lot of our students they would know friends who have attended Galway Technical Institute in Fr Griffin Road, and other  students who attended Galway Community College. Some of their friends have gone on to do training. So this page should help students in their research.
